RN-BSN Fast Track (for RNs seeking a Bachelor of Science in Nursing)

Felician offers a program for RNs seeking to increase their leadership role in nursing by earning a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Based on the principles of adult learning theory and an emphasis on expanding existing professional knowledge, the program prepares RNs for leadership roles in patient care and management. A course in business and a computer course in HIPPA Security are but a few of the dynamic courses in this curriculum.

The 15-month RN-BSN Fast Track is designed for working nurses and is conveniently offered fully online and or on campus. The program is 48 credits – 27 of nursing and 21 of liberal arts – which includes a three-credit graduate course. A Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
